    I don't own any Carminas...

    How do they size up against G&G's TG73... ? I wear a UK11.5E in G&G TG73.

    Carmina lasts size all over the place. In general size down 1 from U.S. D width except for Simpson (size down 0.5).

    I'll agree, the Simpson is mad narrow.

    Will need to "accidentaly" block a shot, send it into the trees and use the 5 minutes before going back to the tee. 5 minutes is all I'm going to have. [​IMG]

    I hope there are some 9UK. Since I go some custom ot orthpedich (don't know how that is written or said) I need like 0.5 extra to get some room.

    Im a UK11 in all my GGs and UK11 in all my Carmina, though I should probably have gotten a UK 11.5 for the Simpson.

    In the same boat. Don't most of us buy UK sizing in EG, JL, G&G etc? The whole size down one full size Is Phuking confusing. Just sayin

    That's what I did. Half size up for Simpson (10.5UK)...every other last is my normal size (10UK)

    This is the overgeneralized sizing advice I've heard/given over the years for the most typical foot.

    X D US = X-1 E UK for CJ, JL, Carmina (except Simpson)
    X D US = X-0.5 E UK for EG, GG, Carmina Simpson
    X D US = X-1 F UK for Alfred Sargent, Loake
    X D US = X+33 F for Vass F last (note increments between halfsizes for euro and US/UK are different)

    No experience with anything else.

    Not true. Standard width, but low instep. If you have a high instep, Simpson won't work.

    I'm slightly wider than a 'D' width, and the Simpson is fine.

    So if I am a US 10 I should go for Carmina 9UK. Nice, thanks! [​IMG]

    welp, im no expert, but literally everyone i have asked that sells then, including red devil above, says its a narrow last. whatever the technical term may be, they fit smaller to everyone i know that has bought them.
